DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse plums and slice into wedges about ¾-inch thick at their widest part.
  • In a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter with *honey, grated ginger and ground cardamom. *Note: If using orange blossom water, stir it in at the end when you remove the pan from the burner.
  • When the mixture is saucy, add plums.
  • Increase heat and cook, moving fruit around pan about every 20 seconds so that cut surfaces take on some color and juices begin to flow, 2–3 minutes.
  • Stop cooking when juice just coats fruit.
  • Remove from heat and transfer to a serving bowl, scraping in all pan liquid.
  • Serve warm or cool.
